USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott has always loved the combination of romance and suspense, because nothing complements falling in love better than being hunted down. The author of more than thirty novels and novellas, Wainscott creates characters with baggage, past hurts, and vulnerabilities. They go through hell, find love, and, at the end, find peace in who they are and everything they’ve gone through. And isn’t that what everyone wants?

How to Become a Member of the Justiss Alliance
You are sitting on the other side of Chase Justiss’s desk. His dark brown hair is perfectly coiffed. His dark blue eyes and lean, sculpted face hold a hint of humor as he peruses your résumé. He crosses one leg over the other, showing fine Italian leather shoes and silk socks.
He sets down your résumé. “So you’ve heard rumors about The Justiss Alliance, and you think you want to join us. You found our headquarters in Miami, so you’ve already passed one test: tenacity. We don’t advertise in the Yellow Pages, and we don’t have a website. Word gets out because we’re good. Sometimes government agencies tap us to go undercover when they can’t get clearance or permission to do so themselves. They know we’re willing to go outside the bounds of the law to find evidence, figure out who the bad guy is, and even save a life when necessary. Private individuals come to us when they’ve run out of doors on which to knock and people on whom to call.
“We have a predominantly male staff, though we welcome a woman who can meet our requirements. One client joked that one of those requirements must be that the applicant be smoking hot, but we assure you that it’s entirely a coincidence that our team members are just that.
“Military experience is a plus. It means you know how to operate as a team. That you can handle weapons. And that you have the guts to use them. During your employment with us, you will likely face down a bad guy aiming a gun at you. Good judgment is as important as good aim.
“You have to be comfortable going undercover. Sometimes posing as part of a couple. Things can get extremely sticky, as some of my operatives have discovered. Pretending to have sex in the bathroom of a biker bar, for instance. Sharing hotel rooms. Hanging around at a nude resort. Even possibly posing as a married couple getting therapy at a BDSM club. You’d better be comfortable with your body … and with the opposite sex.
“Having said that, we discourage intimate relationships with our clients and between our staff. That’s not going so well …
Being in great physical shape is paramount, because you never know what you’ll be forced to do. In theory, you could be running through the woods at night with people playing a game of canned hunt … and you’re the prey. You might have to jump on top of a van and hold on for dear life while the driver’s trying to throw you. Diving off cliffs, also a distinct possibility. You need to be able to swim in pitch dark, hold your breath underwater for long periods of time—while fighting off bikers, say—and run great distances.
“And finally, you need to be willing to lay your life on the line to save another’s. When you join TJA, you are committing to an ideal. An honorable duty. A dangerous job. You must be willing to make choices based on the greater good, not your own. You might kill someone. You might die. At the end of the day, you know you did what was right. Just. And necessary.
Chase gives you a roguish smile. “You ready to sign on?”
The courageous men of USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s Justiss Alliance series never give up and never make a promise they can’t live up to—especially when love is on the line.
The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice.
When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her wild side. Throwing caution to the wind, she propositions Saxby—only to suffer his gentle rejection.
When she wakes in Saxby’s room with no memory of the night before, Jennessy discovers his real purpose: to sniff out an operation where women like her are drugged and prostituted to resort guests. She goes from victim to his investigative partner . . . but getting too close to the sexier-than-sin Saxby may be her wildest move yet.
